Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte declared Europe's immigration policy a "failure" and demanded for it to be renegotiated as he outlined a heavy-spending policy agenda of Italy's populist "government of change" today.

During a local campaign stop in Sicily on Monday, Salvini, who is also a deputy prime minister in the new coalition government sworn in on Friday, said that even though Tunisia was a free and democratic country without "wars, epidemics, famines or pestilence", it "isn't exporting gentlemen, it seems more often they're exporting convicts", Deutsche Welle reported.

Newly appointed Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte speaks during his first session at the Senate in Rome, Italy, June 5, 2018.

But the alliance between the anti-establishment Five Star Movement and far-right League is expected to pass the confidence votes in the Senate on Tuesday and in the lower Chamber of Deputies on Wednesday as the two parties hold a majority in both houses.

"You're deceiving the good faith of Italians if you're trying to make us believe that it's enough just to list these things, without saying how you'll do it or how you'll convince Europe", said Sen. "If populism is the attitude of listening to people's needs, then we lay a claim to it".

Conte is not affiliated to any party, though he is close to 5-Star, which presented him as a potential minister before the March 4 election.

While confirming Italy's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commitments, the new government's policy agenda calls for lifting European Union sanctions against Russian Federation as well as the opening of dialogue and partnerships, given Moscow's economic, commercial and strategic importance.

Italian 10-year yields rose 12 basis points to 2.65 percent as of 12:15 p.m.in London, while those on their German peers dropped two basis point to 0.39 percent.

Conte did not, however, mention a previous pledge to abolish pension reform and whilst he reiterated plans for flat income tax, no timeline was offered.

In the debate after the speech, ex-premier Mario Monti said Italy risks being put under the supervision of the European Central Bank, European Commission and International Monetary Fund unless the government carefully manages public accounts.

The 5-Star-League's financial platform has anxious economists and European Union policymakers who warn it will increase Italy's debt burden, already Europe's heaviest after Greece.

On immigration, a major election issue after an influx of hundreds of thousands of mostly African asylum seekers, Conte said the government would end "the immigration business".

All told, it was a measured speech from the new politician.

Once the parliamentary votes are over, Conte will leave for his first worldwide summit, a G7 meeting in Canada that starts on Friday.
